The Boston Gay Men’s Chorus (BGMC) announced it’s the recipient of the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network’s (MNN) 2016 Excellence Award in Communications for its communications work on last year’s groundbreaking Middle East Tour which showcased the organization as an agent of social change & demonstrated that music performed by an openly gay male choral group can move audiences to a deeper understanding of our LGBT community. The award recognizes a nonprofit that effectively deploys strategic messaging to carry out its mission. Reuben Reynolds III, BGMC’s music director stated, “We are absolutely over the moon to receive this award from the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network, which does so much to promote the Commonwealth’s nonprofit sector. When we embarked on our tour of the Middle East we were confident our music would build bridges & break down barriers in the communities we visited. But our communications for the Tour amplified our voices far beyond the concert venues. It enabled our fans & other arts enthusiasts at home to see our impact in real time & allowed BGMC to reach a global audience with our message that even in this complicated world, BGMC’s musical experiences inspire change, build community & celebrate difference.” BGMC made history in June 2015 when it became the first gay chorus to tour the Middle East, performing concerts in Israel & Turkey.
